Dog Boarding in Cairo

Having a dog in Egypt can be hassle. Most vets are not as experienced as those in other countries, and it is often difficult to find places to walk your best friend without scaring off a few Egyptians each time. Perhaps the most burning question for those looking to travel to Egypt with their pets (either for a short visit or to live here) and for Egyptians who are planning on owning a dog (or already do) is: where do I leave my fluffy friend if I plan on travelling around Egypt? The majority of hotels in Egypt do not allow dogs and so in most cases you cannot take your dog with you. I faced this dilemma with my Samoyed, Teddy Bear, on three occasions so far where my family wanted to travel. Finding a good boarding kennel was frustrating, and so to help you decide where your buddy should go, I prepared a short review of the two top kennels in Cairo.

Meet Teddy!

Meet Teddy!

International Veterinary Hospital & Pet Motel

Teddy stayed at this dog hotel – his first ever stay at a kennel – during our trip to Egypt’s lustrous El-Gouna. Upon our visit there prior to taking Teddy there, we were impressed. The ‘rooms’ were relatively spacious and looked onto a nice, shallow pool. During hot weather, some rooms were even air conditioned (which is great for a Siberian dog like Teddy).

The International Veterinary Hospital and Pet Motel

The friendly receptionist told us that Teddy would be allowed to roam in the area in front of him a few times a day, and that they would give him a bath (but no other grooming is involved). Anxious and short on time, we decided to leave Teddy here for the duration of our trip (4 nights). Before they accept him, they require proof of vaccination and a birth certificate (or some sort of identification). Once you arrive, they take your dog and perform a quick check up to ensure that he is in ‘good health’. After that, you say goodbye, and let him go with one of the staff.

Four nights later, we returned and were shocked at the state Teddy was in. He was muddy, smelled really bad, and had a yellow mark on his snout – indicating that they had tied his mouth (even though Teddy only barks if there is something wrong). Overall: he seemed to be upset and not in good shape. Before letting us go, they do a quick ‘check up’ to ensure that he is healthy. When we remarked about his color and smell, they said he had recently been bathed. They must have used a hose (and not a bath or other washing facilities) to clean him, and the mud (and smell) indicated that he hadn’t been properly dried. For the whole car ride home, he slept on my lap – visibly exhausted.

However, despite that, they did seem to care about the dogs they kept – but maybe were a bit inexperienced as to how to ‘groom them’ or ensure they are comfortable. Overall, I would recommend this place if you are unable to leave your pet at the next place I will review. It is still a lot better than many other poor dog boarding kennels that are available in Cairo. 

Price: 100 L.E. per day for the ‘high-end’ package. For more information visit their Facebook page.

Eastwind Kennels

I had tried to book here first (prior to choosing the previous kennel) on December 14th but they were all booked out until January 5th 2013. After sending Teddy there for 3 nights, it was not surprising why this place is very popular among expat forums.

Unlike the other kennel, Eastwind actually has a fully interactive website.

Prior to accepting your dog, you must ensure he has received a cough vaccination. This can be done at one of many vets in Cairo – however I have not tried enough in order to recommend any specific one. After calling them up, sending them electronic copies of all required paperwork (proof of vaccination, birth certification etc.) Teddy was ready to go!

Entering Eastwind you realize how spacious it is. There are approximately 90-100 kennels and the majority of the ones I saw were filled with all kinds of dogs: from Labradors and German Shepherds to Rottweilers and Poodles. Immediately, a well-dressed man greets you, takes your dog’s details and then asks you to say goodbye to the dog. Prior to taking him to his room, the man got to know Teddy and walked him around the spacious outdoor area – familiarizing him with the location. Of course, Teddy being stubborn, he simply laid down and was unwilling to move. The man was very kind and allowed us to walk with them for a few minutes, until Teddy was happily roaming around and we could silently disappear.

The whole process of giving them the paper work and releasing the dog lasted less than five minutes (at the other kennel, this duration was at least 20-30 minutes).

Upon returning 3 nights later, I was glad to see Teddy was in great shape. He was clean, playful with the man, and most importantly: he seemed happy.

I believe that is the most important aspect that any dog owner cares about: the dog’s happiness and comfort. It is therefore not a surprise that I would absolutely recommend this dog boarding hotel over any other kennel in Cairo. They are professional, clean, and provide great hospitality for your dog.

Teddy stayed at the indoor kennel section in a ‘room with a view’ that cost L.E. 100. Other options are available. For more information, visit their website http://2ewk.com/

  3. apple iphone Security

    This informative article will concentrate on Apples theft deterrent technique primarily for
    the iPhone, we will cover the positives and negatives of this
    specific new safety procedure. We will demonstrate a step-by-step online video
    media to sidestep the iCloud Initial screen for all those iPhones running iOS
    7.
    More details

    Since the release associated with Apples iOS 7 (iPhone Computer 7), your
    Cupertino business added numerous changes both aesthetically and internally.
    To name a couple of, these functions include,
    a whole new GUI (Graphical User Interface),
    Control Center, Siri, Limelight, iCloud integration plus
    much more. Apple additionally updated the flagship iphone
    3gs 5S together with better internals, like a new PC, added
    memory (RAM), graphics hardware (GPU) and much
    more. Optimizing multitasking and effectiveness of
    the particular iPhone. On top of that Apple furthermore
    introduced a new finger art print integrated property
    button, this bio-metric scanner is extremely efficient and works adequately.
    It allows you to use your fingerprint to be a method of authentication which enables it to do things for instance unlock ones phone and validate purchases on the device.
    These brand new security-centric improvements clearly display Apples increased
    exposure of security featuring a latest iteration of iOS.
    This is proven to work!

    I was not writing this informative article to highlight Apples great
    innovations; rather I want to glow some light within the issues with Apples
    new “iCloud Initial Service”. This specific feature seemed to be implemented to be able to detour would-be intruders from stealing Apple devices.
    The person simply must create an iCloud bill upon purchasing their i phone,
    thereafter ought to promptly help Find-My-iPhone. If an iCloud bill
    already exists next the process must be done
    pretty quick, otherwise an individual can develop a new
    iCloud bank account directly in the iPhone or perhaps through iTunes.
    Within a case exactly where an iPhone continues to be unlawfully considered (Stolen), who owns the iPhone can
    track these devices, send tailor made notifications in addition to remotely
    wipe/erase your iPhone. These kinds of security procedures go 1
    step further, if a person restore the actual iPhone completely you’ll be
    asked for the original owners iCloud references. If you can not obtain the best
    iCloud data, then this iPhone is actually a useless paperweight and also considered ineffective.

    I would like to state beforehand until this is probably the most effective device theft discouraging factor system currently,
    and would choose to give acceptance to Apple for the powerful creativity and rapid global rendering.

    – GadgetWide Crew

    So what’s the condition?

    Having praised Apple in the first 2 paragraphs, I should say that there are a major
    downside to the present security gate. One of the biggest issues
    people are having is usually buying a good iPhone second-hand from
    a legitimate seller and also later notice
    that the “Find The iPhone” function is upon. If not
    really already closed out the alternative will
    be displayed by basically accessing the particular phones configurations and picking iCloud
    in the assortment connected with menu choices. Here is the place that the problem sits; the second-hand owner cannot take away the existing iCloud bank account,
    reset the actual iPhone, modify the program or command any administrative rights.
    The exact same restrictions apply regardless of whether the end user attempts to do a CHALLENGING RESET or maybe
    complete healing, once reset and absolutely wiped the person is again requested the first iCloud recommendations.
    Currently, a big percentage connected with iPhone users do not
    even know that they have “Find Our iPhone” started, these men and women unknowingly
    offer their authorized devices along with iCloud ON producing
    an ultimate “bricked” or maybe non-working device for that
    new consumers. This may go unnoticed by the second palm
    owners until eventually an iOS update is set up. Once a
    good update has been installed the actual MUST re-input the
    previous owners iCloud facts, if the owner doesn’t need the proper information
    the particular iPhone will likely be rendered “bricked”
    along with useless. This is really a major
    problem and has greatly affected the legitimate
    market for second hand iPhones as well as instilled any fear amid buyers online.
    I experienced real-world personal experience using this problem coming from several people online.
    With the particular production along with YouTube release with the video below We have received quite a few comments as well
    as posts from people suffering from this precise issue, these people legally bought their
    iPhone or other Apple company device online and therefore are now stuck using a nonfunctional product.
    Apple really must start supporting most of these issues, and nowadays Apple incorporates a zero tolerance approach without alternative pertaining to iCloud activation problems.
    The only type connected with support Apple is very offering is usually
    NONE in support of suggest obtaining the original credentials from your previous owner.

    iCloud Activation Security BYPASSED!

    With all of these issues effecting the modern iteration connected with
    iOS particularly with iCloud and also the iPhone, I’ve taken over a personal endeavor and thoroughly researched a different workaround.
    With this particular, I possess successfully discovered a functional solution to address
    the issue which has a possible deal with. I possess since properly bypassed a few separate legitimately purchased i-phones with fully functional software and newly added consumer credentials.
    Bypassing the initial screen is fairly simple since demonstrated from
    the video beneath, however Apple mackintosh disables option
    of a lot of the software once bypassed. On this
    and seeing that previously reported, I have got
    successfully bypassed as well as activated a few iPhone units with thoroughly
    functional apps and features. Beyond the video below I’m
    working on the permanent procedure i can demonstrate and that
    is both repeatable with video as well as functionally noted.
    Unfortunately the actual three prosperous results obtained were recognized
    using fully random methods and in which not consistent collectively, with unforeseen
    behavior and also results definitely not exactly as
    a result of a research. Currently I will be working thoroughly toward achieving
    a completely functional steady demonstration to help iPhone users with this problem, once obtained I will post an instantaneous article as well
    as video demonstration within this website.
    Routinely check GadgetWide. com with the latest media and advancements regarding this and
    other technology related issues. To see the present iOS 7
    iCloud initial bypass method watch this step-by-step instructions
    in the video beneath, the steps within this video focus
    on all apple iphones with iOS 7 and on iOS 7. 0. several.
